Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Techning methods include lectures, computer laboratories and practical laboratories. Course is taking advantage of e-learning (Moodle) system. Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in article 7 of the BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Evaluation of study results follows the Rules for Studies and Examinations of BUT and the Dean's Regulation complementing the Rules for Studies and Examinations of BUT.
Up to 40 points are given for work in laboratory.
Up to 60 points are given for the final examination.
Language of instruction
1. Data transmission systems, structure, properties and behaviour.
2. The basic principle of protecting data against errors.
3. Error control coding, block codes.
4. Error control coding, tree codes.
5. Error control coding, turbo codes.
6. Communication network structure, communication, transmission systems.
7. Metallic lines in the access network.
8. DSL systems, properties, reference configurations.

12. PLC modems.
The objective of the course is to teach students to recognize reliable activities of data transmission systems. Methods of data signal coding are studied in the first place. Major emphasis is laid on code protection against errors generated during data signal transmission.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
